With restricted free-agent Cody Franson still unsigned, the first order of business would be to get his signature on a new contract.
Once Franson's contract negotiations are resolved, the next order of business would be to acquire an additional defenseman.
Over the course of a season, defensive depth is of utmost importance in the event of injuries or slumping players, so an additional body on the back end is key for the Leafs. Especially considering that as of right now, their top-six defensemen aren't exactly the class of the NHL (sorry Leafs fans, it's true).
A player like Kyle Quincey would be ideal.
I'm not saying I would go after Kyle Quincey (the Red Wings would be loath to part with him considering their own lack of blue-line depth), or that he's even available, but a player with his skill set would help in multiple ways.
Quincey is a defenseman with good size, a willingness to play the body, solid skating ability and the awareness to chip in on the second power-play unit, as well as the penalty kill. In short, he can do a little bit of everything.
The price for a player with a skill set as mentioned isn't cheap, but there aren't many untouchables on the Leafs roster. And don't worry, I wouldn't trade the Leafs' 2013 first-round pick.
